YEP Appeal for funding

This project aims to set up a Pangaea Project Center in Kota Kinabalu, Borneo. This will be used to grow artificial reefs to replenish the dying coral and protect the local marine ecosystem, integral to the environmental sustainability of the water. The key thrust of this project is that we wish to involve the locals and give them a stake in this project, by educating them on environmental conservation. We believe that it is the people who live in that area who has the largest influence on the environment there. Thus, these locals, when educated and inspired, are the ones most able to effect sustainable and impactful change.

The preliminary groundwork will begin in January 2011, and the Pangaea Center will be established by end 2012. Your donations would be invaluable for our acquirement of the coral growth facility (tanks, pumps etc.) and logistics (e.g. diving equipment, scrap metal for building artificial reefs etc.).

We believe that the strategy of our project will help us make a long term positive impact on the environment. By educating the Borneo locals, we are equipping their community with the know-how to conserve the water environment, thus initiating change from within, towards sustainable environmental behaviour.

    Hi, Neat post. There is a problem with your website in internet explorer, could check this?
    IE still is the marketplace leader and a good portion of other folks will omit your magnificent writing because of this problem.
